warm and indoors, a great place to be after an arctic week across much of this country. tonight, though, yet another system on the move from the midwest right into new england. ice is on the way. look at this tonight. ice chunks in the delaware river in new hope, pennsylvania. and this man walking across an icy lake in south haven, michigan. and take a look at the low temperatures expected overnight. this storm system will bring cold and snow and danger on the roadway, black ice. the greatest concern comes as those two systems collide right there. warmer air from the south pushing into that frigid air up north. tonight, the extreme weather pictures already coming in. abc's gio benitez leading us off. >> reporter: layer upon layer of ice is making highways so treacherous, even this police officer is having trouble driving straight. in north carolina, black ice is the biggest concern. >> i forgot that the roads were kind of icy and i turned sharply and hydroplaned. >> reporter: black ice sent this car off the road.
5:31 pm
and for those getting around on foot it's not much better. this emergency room in ohio was filled up with patients who slipped and fell on ice. >> i was laying on my back in the snow for maybe 20 minutes. >> reporter: you may remember this postal carrier in fulton, new york, where on wednesday, we saw more than 3 feet of snow. today, about a foot remains. how many layers do you have on? >> on the top, i have one, two, three, four, five. on the bottom, i have three. then i have three on my head. >> reporter: wow, you're well prepared. >> i'm well prepared. i was a boy scout. >> reporter: another dangerous icy coat is forecast starting tomorrow, stretching from the midwest to the northeast, when warm air above clashes with cold surface air. >> we could pick up a quarter of an inch of ice on the surfaces. and you put those on trees, power lines, causing very hazardous road conditions. >> reporter: already, another storm brewing in the northwest. expected to bring more snow and rain early next week. and david, right now, the temperature here in new york city, 27 degrees.
5:32 pm
but black ice could really form in temperatures as high as 37 degrees. so, not necessarily freezing, david, just make sure you look at that temperature gauge in your car. >> in your car. all of the way up to 37 degrees. a lot of people think it's 32. gio, thank you. and welcome to this broadcast as well. >> thank you. we're going to turn to washington, now, where thousands are braving the cold, marching and demanding that lawmakers to do something demanding that tragedies like newtown never happen again. tonight, another development in this debate over guns. a famous author pulling his book from store shelves after it was discovered that 14 shooters had his book. right along with their arsenal. here's reena ninan in washington tonight. >> reporter: they called it to the silent rally. but they had one unified message that brought them to washington. >> we want a ban on assault weapons. >> reporter: they came all over the country with the intention
5:33 pm
of preventing this -- grace mcdonnell was one of the sandy hook victims. her parents sat in the audience as the white house embarks on one of the most extensive gun control efforts ever. the initiative -- a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. universal background checks. additional mental health services. author stephen king is pulling his book, "rage," about a high school student who guns down faculty members, published in 1977 under a pseudonym. four different teenagers who committed school shootings had copies of the book. "you don't leave a can of gasoline where a boy with firebug tendencies can lay hands on it." and congress members vowing to take the nra head on. >> the gun lobby can be stopped, my friends, they can be stopped. >> reporter: voices in the crowd taking the first steps in a long push to reform the nation's gun laws. as the protesters dispersed today, they looked ahead to wednesday, the first
5:34 pm
congressional hearings for legislation on gun control. the head of the nra, wayne lapierre and the husband of gabby giffords, mark kelly, will testify. david? >> along with them so many of those families from newtown. reena, thank you. another image from washington making headlines tonight, president obama in his first joint interview with someone other than his wife, instead hillary clinton, when you think back, the two battling it out in the democratic primary nearly five years ago, making history coming down to the two of them. then going on to form quite an alliance, the connection behind the scenes and in front of the cameras. right here, as they observed the bodies of those diplomats brought home from libya. tonight, why the president decided to sit down with hillary clinton now. is it about a campaign that's yet to come? here's abc's david kerley. >> i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had. >> reporter: a first -- a dual interview with the president, who told cbs' "60 minutes" why he wanted to sit with hillary clinton. >> i want the country to
5:35 pm
appreciate just what an extraordinary role she's played. >> reporter: a remarkable conclusion to a relationship that at first recommend sbled a no-holds-barred fight. >> i didn't say anything about ronald reagan. >> reporter: two senators. one expected to win, and the upstart. as obama came on, out came that memorable ad from hillary. >> it's 3 a.m. there's a phone in the white house and it's ringing. >> reporter: questioning his ability to lead. >> your vote will decide who answers that call. >> reporter: finally, they were the last two standing for the nomination. the last two on the stage. >> i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough. >> reporter: after weeks of trying to fight the math, clinton finally admitted she could not break the glass ceiling. >> thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it. >> reporter: but then, something few expected. the new president tapping his former rival to be one of his team's most important players. there they were, traveling the
5:36 pm
world. together as navy s.e.a.l.s. closed in on osama bin laden. and the solemn task of watching the remains of americans killed in libya returning home. >> it has been a great collaboration. >> reporter: even the secretary seems surprised. >> a few years ago it would have been seen as improbable. >> reporter: democracy and service has left them not rivals, but colleagues. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes. and why did he ask me, and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> this has been quite a partnership to witness. david, back with you. you heard me ask that question a moment ago, but a lot of people are asking, is this about 2016? >> reporter: i have a feeling that the guy back here in the house said hey, i was just saying thank you. but many people here in washington are wondering, is this an endorsement for hillary to be the candidate for the democratic party for 2016 or a way for him to say thank you to bill clinton for jumping in and helping at the end of the campaign? political intrigue in washington, it never stops.
5:37 pm
>> it never stops. david kerley at the white house tonight. as always, david, thanks. we're going to turn now to economy and the stock market on quite a roll. last night here, we reported on american baby boomers finally seeing a recovery in their 401(k)s. the dow closing near 13,896. nearing that psychological barrier of 14,000. and approaching the all-time high from 2007, before the recession. but, even as the dow makes this rebound, why is an american giant apple not benefitting? tonight, many questioning whether the loss of steve jobs has hurt the company for good? here's "good morning america" weekend anchor bianna golodryga tonight. >> it's what you wanted, it's what your gut, instincts wanted. >> reporter: in the new biopic, "jobs," ashton kutcher playing the role of steve jobs -- talking about instinct. knowing what the average american consumer needs and wants before they even know it. it's what helped jobs -- long after ascending to the top of his industry -- stay far ahead of the pack. but this week, a huge bit out of the once mighty apple.
5:38 pm
after soaring to a record stock price just four months ago, the tech giant has plunged nearly 40%. and tonight, apple has lost its venerable title as the world's most valuable company to exxon. why the recent slump? economists say for one, competitors like samsung, have upped their game. not out-inventing apple, but matching them, device for device. but the bigger threat, is the loss of steve jobs himself. it's been nearly a year and a half since the death of apple's founder and many worry that the company has lost its creative genius. >> apple was very much steve jobs. we saw apple lost its way in the 1980s after he left. lot of people left apple for dead. they brought steve jobs back and the company, once again, was focused on innovation and consumer needs and consumer tastes in ways that it hadn't
5:39 pm
been before. the real question is whether apple can replicate the mind of steve jobs. >> how does somebody know what they want if they've never even seen it? >> reporter: and with that new movie coming, the part of the real life story still unwritten, is whether apple can continue inventing the next best thing. before anyone else. and before consumers realize they even want it. now, apple hasn't completely lost its way. it sold 48 million iphones over the holidays. 23 million ipads and ipad minis. the key for investors, right now, is can apple come up with the next big thing? >> an actual apple tv set in your home. what is the ceo saying about that? >> tim cook has been very cryptic, the only thing he said is that the tv area is a great interest to the company. >> bianna, thank you. in the meantime, we turn to michigan tonight, where a manhunt is on for an armed and dangerous criminal who escaped from prison. look at this. this surveillance video showing him simply walking out. he was disguised as another
5:40 pm
prisoner who was supposed to be release. as abc's mark greenblatt reports, this wasn't his first escape. >> reporter: tonight, a nationwide manhunt is on the way. a dangerous career criminal and says he keeps escaping from james. he walked out of this phoenix jail last may, after authorities say he switched identity bracelets with another inmate scheduled for release. officers caught up with him earlier this month, 2,000 miles away in detroit, where they found him with a loaded ak-47. like this. but it took marquez just six days inside the wayne county jail before he escaped yet again. >> the jails are having a hard time keeping rocky incarcerated. >> he's somehow getting inmates to cooperate. to use their identities to walk out of jail. >> reporter: marquez pulled off his latest vanishing act just last sunday and the ruse went undetected in detroit for days.
5:41 pm
with no one catching on, until friday. >> i'm confident that he'll be once again be put behind bars. >> reporter: investigators tell me that they believe he's likely committing more crimes now on the run. they consider himself armed and dangerous. >> incredible case. mark greenblatt, thank you. we do move on to that controversial headline involving gatorade tonight and the one ingredient now being taken out. some say that ingredient was a flame retardant. and here, tonight, is abc's tanya rivero. >> reporter: mississippi teen sarah kavanagh has shaken up the sports drink industry. the online petition she helped create forced gatorade to ditch a controversial ingredient. >> gatorade. >> reporter: pepsico has announced that it will remove it from the gatorade citrus version, used to keep the flavor consistent. but bvo as it's called shares an ingredient with some flame retardants. and has long before a focus of food safety advocates.
5:42 pm
the european union and japan ban bvo from all food products. in her petition on, the 15-year-old wrote, no one wants to gulp down flame retardant, especially from a drink they associate with being healthy. and over 200,000 consumers agreed. in a statement, pepsico said that, while our products are safe, we're making this change because we know that some consumers have a negative perception of bvo in gatorade. >> and the u.s. food and drug administration hasn't reviewed bvo since the '70s. at that time it called for more testing, david, that still hasn't been done. >> all right, that 15-year-old on the case. there's still much more ahead here on "world news" -- look at this. this $2.5 million mansion in florida, vacant, until a man simply moved in on his own and the law might be on his side tonight. and later this evening, joining the women of "the view," but the real star was this 7-year-old boy and the mystery

5:46 pm
florida mansion free for the taking. at least that's the theory. last july, after bank of america foreclosed on this five-bedroom waterside estate forcing the owners out, andre barbosa, a 23-year-old brazilian national, moved in. >> nobody is happy. we all spent a lot of money to live on this street. >> reporter: police were called but barbosa is claiming adverse possession, allowing anyone to claim an empty property by occupying it seven years. >> it was intended for properties that had been abandoned or neglected. >> reporter: and it's not just in florida, adverse possession is legal in all 50 states. in texas, kenneth robinson lived in here for seven months. he was eventually kicked out. >> reporter: she used the arcane law to take over three homes? georgia. she was later arrested.
